4 Grassroots Preservation Small Science > Big Science The sum of the smaller parts adds up to a greater number than that of the bigger parts combined Grassroots preservation for Institutional and Small Business Outputs Until now EPrints has mainly been focused on encouraging acquisition of Data. How do we create our Global Collection ?

5 : History of… Proposed as a build your own repository solution Enable institutions and groups to participate in OAI metadata sharing initiative. First released April 2000 (to co-inside with OAI-PMH) Version 3.1 release at recent Open Repositories Conference 2008 Used by over 240 registered repositories (58130 Records) (49132 Records) (32169 Records) Number of Records captured from the Registry of Open Access Repositories (ROAR)

6 : Management Open source (GNU license) EPrints development model is more centralised than DSpace / Fedora Faster turnaround on development cycles More focused Easier quality management Better for Support Model EPrints Services: Repository hosting, bespoke development & training Sustain the development team

7 : Core Objectives Lower the barrier for depositors while improving metadata quality and ultimate collection value Time saving deposits Import data from other repositories and services Autocomplete-as-you-type for fast data entry Name authorities Enter once, reuse often Works with bibliography managers, desktop applications and new Web 2.0 mashups RSS feeds and alerts keep you up to date Easily integrate reports, bibliographic listings, author CVs and RSS feeds into your corporate web presence Used for corporate reporting and national Research Assessment Simple platform for open source contributions Tightly-managed, quality-controlled code framework Flexible plug-in architecture for developing extensions Import Export XML EndNote PubMed Spreadsheet CrossRef ACM Digital Library BibTeX OAI-ORE ORE Resource Map Google Maps Simile Timeline Bibtex Endnote PubMed OAI-PMH XML EPrints OBJECT STORE metadata + data Fully searchable and scriptable

8 Digital Preservation "It is important to build the concept of preservation from the outset. In the digital era, the 'outset' for most new research and educational materials will be the institutional repository."

9 Digital Preservation Long term reliable storage Open Storage Maintaining readability Migration / Emulation Interoperability for multiple usage scenarios

10 Long Term Storage Reliable Self Checking and Self Healing file System Resiliant Must have the capability to be robust in the case of part failure Simple & Expandable Must be made of parts which are easy to expand / upgrade way into the future. Open Any software developed to enable all of the above must be open, same with any hardware specifications.

13 Export Plug-ins : Architecture EPrints is expanding the number places in which plug-ins can be utilised. Diagram Represents Proposed EPrints 3.2 Architecture Import Plug-ins Honeycomb

14 The Storage Controller Each item can be stored using a different storage plug-in (hence in a different place) dependant on file or metadata properties and values. e.g. Large binary files of scientific data (raw machine result data) can be stored in a large disk (slower access) system and sent to a tape company for long term storage. Processed results can be stored locally and on a honeycomb server where they are preserved. Allows a repository to use a 3 rd party storage platform Direct deposition into a honeycomb etc Great enabler for preservation Let the repository control the deposit process. Ensures that the complete object is preserved and not just the harvested bits

15 Open Storage for Repositories Honeycomb Simple, open, managed storage. Advanced features built in: ZFS Error and Bit Shift Correction Metadata Layer Simple API Store Retrieve Delete Simple to interface with Repository Software RAID 6

18 Characterisation & Migration Services The online registry of technical information. PRONOM is a resource for anyone requiring impartial and definitive information about the file formats, software products and other technical components required to support long-term access to electronic records and other digital objects of cultural, historical or business value. Free PRONOM tools and services to support digital preservation, including DROID, the automatic file format identification tool, together with links to relevant external tools and services. Under Investigation: Significant Properties Registry, Migration Tools Registry, Risk Analysis and Feedback.

19 Interoperability in Action Preserv Repository Preservation and Interoperability.org.uk OAI-ORE EPrints & Fedora Which is which?

20 Digital Preservation EPrints will provide one of the first platforms for the development of preservation services where direct interaction takes place between the Repository Software and Preservation Services. +

21 Physical Storage Honeycomb … Services TNA API - PRONOM File Format Identification Significant Properties Migration Tools (Performance Metrics) Scheduler (Oxford) Services & Invocation API Interoperability OAI-ORE Specification & Mapping One More Thing… Smart Storage Storage which has the capability to perform actions directly upon the objects stored within it. Autonomous classification and migration of objects No reliance on repository software for processor time, yet same results.
